/var partition is read only in CentOS 5.x


I need my /var partition to be read/write but when I rebooted my server it now is /var read only. If someone knows how I can get this partition to be read/write that would be unbelievably great. Thanks in advance.

Ro mounting is a feature to safeguard against problems. Do for instance 'tune2fs -l /dev/partitionname | grep ^Err'. If the partition comes up as ro or gets set ro then there is an underlying problem you have to work on first. Review your system logs and dmesg, then fsck the partition.

Code:
# mount -o remount,rw /var
Maybe you need to run filesystem check...
